Rest In Peace “Doll”
























Some of you who have read my blog for a while will remember this, one of my Visual Anthologies™























Today "Doll" passed away after a long battle with illness.

Whilst I never met Tamara as she lived in South Africa, she and I had many occasions to converse.






















She was such a beautiful soul and wonderful artist.

















It was such a huge honour for me to have done this book for her and her husband, celebrating their wonderful love for one another.
























May her husband, children and grandchildren find peace in knowing she was loved by so many. Doll will surely be missed by so many lives she touched including mine.

Welcome back Judy, we missed you. What sad news to greet you on your return. At least she was able to see and cherish your anthology for awhile before she died.

Just by reading this post, and the others referred to I see snippets of Doll's life, her passion for life, particularly family, and the love that surrounded her, and I see a great example to all of us on how to live. What a treasure your artwork will be to her family - both present and future, a piece of Doll to sit with for awhile, to be comforted and uplifted.

Such sad news but wonderful that Doll was able to enjoy her book, so lovingly made by you. The book will indeed remain a family treasure. So good to see you back. I really look forward to clicking on to your blogs.

I'm sorry to hear about Doll, but I'm sure your book was loved by her when she was here and will be cherished by her family forever.

Welcome home!

As others have already said, how special that Doll was able to have this gift from you!

The loss of anyone is hard to take, but there are always the memories that we keep close to our heart.

Please forgive me for not saying more . . .
